    Well 1942 was pretty early in the war for most of the survival kits. The only one I can think of off hand would be the jungle backpad survival kit that was worn between the back parachute and the crew member. This is the kit that had the collins machete in it. Most of the other kits came out later. Can't help you with a link right now though.
